Tips for Efficient Carpet Cleaning
Dirt, as opposed to daily wear and tear, is the largest single contributor to the early demise of carpets. While not visible to the eye, carpets act as a magnet for oil, lint, pollen, and pet hair.
Vacuum regularly to remove dirt, dust, and other particles. Dust is enemy number one, and the longer it stays, the more deeply it becomes embedded. We recommend using an upright vacuum with a beater bar for best results. Use mats at entrances. It's remarkable how this will help protect your carpeting.
Experts recommend professional carpet cleaning every 6-12 months, depending on the foot traffic. Regular cleaning will help preserve your carpet fibers and keep colors brighter. Many households call a professional cleaner after pollen season, while others prefer to clean their carpets just before the year-end holiday season.
Extend the life of your carpet: Have cleaner rugs by rearranging the furniture in your rooms. Most people leave their furniture in one position for the life of the carpeting. The result is that people sit in the same spots and walk through the same areas all of the time. By moving your furniture and changing the traffic patterns in your room, you expose different parts of your floor to wear. Spread the wear patterns out. Carpeting that wears evenly will last years longer and stay cleaner longer.
Homeowners treating spots: It is not recommended that homeowners treat spots with chemicals that they are unfamiliar with. Always use hot water or neutral chemicals to treat stains and blot out all excess moisture with a clean cloth. Shop Vac machines are also recommended to remove excess water and chemicals from your carpet or upholstery.
